A Braddon man convicted of a New Year's morning one-punch attack last year has lost an appeal.
Jordan Sharma, 20 years old at the time, turned himself in after drunkenly punching a man in the face - who went on to have his jaw wired shut with a titanium plate and 4 screws.
Sharma's lawyer argued the full-time jail sentence for recklessly inflicting grievous bodily harm was too rough.
But Justice Elkaim said deterrence is necessary and Sharma will stay behind bars until 2019.
